Dirty Fleurons?
0

I’m setting a project using p22’s beautiful Operina fonts for display, and I’ve found that practically none of my text ornaments look good next to Operina; they are all too sharp-edged and formal. Can someone recommend me a source of antiquey-looking fleurons, preferably an inexpensive one? (I am a poor student; for me, Operina was an extravagance, but a bloody satisfying one.)

I guess the best thing to do would be to design your own ornaments, in a similar style of Operina.
Or don’t use ornaments at all. I mean, you’re already using a calligraphic typeface with decorative alternatives.

or do something like printing them out, crumpling up the paper, then scanning them back in. Maybe?
